    This teacher stepped outside of the box and got rid of the majority of her desks only keeping 11, so that she could have more room to do group & interactive activities. The rest of the students choose to sit in bean bags, lawn chairs, or lay on the floor during work. She backed it all up with research for her principal & her students still stay on task. Love it!

Get to sit in the "Sweet Seat" for your birthday or as a classroom management tool. Image only.

    This is a cute idea, I think it woukd be very ditractjng and could act as a trigger for students with eatjng disorders.

You only need a couple hula hoops and a beanbag to play this fun game

I'm thinking change "sit" to "stand," hands folded to hands at your sides, and "speaker" to forward. Perfect for when we leave the classroom.

'Quiet Critters' sit on desks while children are working. They are afraid of loud noise so everyone must be very quiet when they are around. :) Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

This is a wonderful article emphasizing the importance of allowing students to move to increase attention and focus.

Pinterest inspired: My Boggle Board! My kids LOVE it. I put it on a smaller white board, so it can "travel" the classroom. Either sit at the front of the room or at the Word Work Station.

    Very. Cool.

    Do you have instructions for this? I am not too familiar with the game.

  • Valerie King

    oh, well, I made up my own rules that go along with the actual game. The student use the letters presented to make words. You can only use the letters presented to make a word, you can repeat a letter unless it's presented as a repeat. When I change my board out I use the spelling patterns being used in our spelling words for that week. For instance this picture we were using -er and -est, so I made sure they were in there. Thats about it. My students pull out there Boggle paper when they are an earlier finisher and it's a "can do" assignment at my word work center. I hope this makes sense :)

2nd Grade Classroom inspired by #CTP Letters on the floor for student to know where to sit.

Add an icon so students sit at same spot for small groups every time. Eliminates time wasted due to seating arguments and reinforces a skill- shapes, colors, etc. Can change the skill throughout the year according to what you want to concentrate on and keep it interesting.

She transformed this $5 estate sale chair into a birthday chair for her students to sit in on their birthdays.
